Cinebench R20 Single Thread

AMD Ryzen 9 5900X Cinebench R20

In the Cinebench R20 single-threaded test, we see a result of 646 points, which is exceptional for any CPU. This is a significant improvement over the older Ryzen 9 3900X.

Cinebench R20 Multi-Thread

AMD Ryzen 9 5900X Cinebench R20

In this test, we see a score of 9224 from the overclocked 5900X. Compare that to the 8414 of the 5900X at stock speeds and the improvement is relatively solid. Now, compared to the 7251 of the 3900X, the difference is substantial. The 11900K simply falls flat on its face here.

Cinebench R23 Single-Thread

AMD Ryzen 9 5900X Cinebench R23

In Cinebench R23’s single-thread test, we see a smaller gap across the test systems. The 5900X while overclocked manages only a small lead over the stock 11900K, but achieves a decent gain over the 5900X at stock speeds. The Ryzen 9 3900X falls behind everything else here.

Cinebench R23 Multi-Thread

AMD Ryzen 9 5900X Cinebench R23

In the multi-thread test, the 5900X far outstrips its predecessor here. Oddly, it’s faster at stock speeds than overclocked. This is a test that traditionally favors manual overclocking on CPUs with larger core counts. The 11900K gets beaten pretty badly here as its core count is just too low to compete.

  1. You’re missing (or mislabeled) the 3900x “Max” and “Min” on the first Ghost Recon Breakpoint chart.

    Also, though I hate to be a turd, but those FPS charts don’t work at all for me. I’d much rather see one line going across with the min, avg and max color coded on it. It makes things too unnecessarily busy when there’s a separate line for each. Again, just my opinion.

    Most likely mislabeled. The graph format will also be changing in the future for these.

  3. Thanks [USER=6]@Dan_D[/USER] , awesome article!

    I’m loving these comparison articles. For those of us with the older chips it’s nice to see what the real gains could be. I’m still going to hold onto my 3700x for a bit but that other article you did on it vs the [URL=’https://www.thefpsreview.com/2021/10/06/amd-ryzen-7-5800x-vs-ryzen-7-3700x-performance-review/’]5800x[/URL] was a bit of an eye opener.

    Yeah, the Ryzen 5000 series offers quite a bit over the 3000 series performance wise. Although, whether or not that’s enough to justify the price of an upgrade is debatable.

  5. Since this is a “now that Zen3 has been out for a while” type of article, was there any significant difference between performance upon initial release versus now when things have matured a bit?

    Unfortunately, that’s a question I can’t really answer. We didn’t have the 5900X until somewhat recently. The availability was so bad that we didn’t get sampled by AMD when these were released and we had to buy this CPU retail. And again, retail availability was horrible so it took us a really long time to get one.

    The answer should be “yes.” By how much? I couldn’t say unfortunately.
